Subject: Very interesting
They managed to explain more to me about electricity than I was ever able to grasp before (by keeping it simple), and the concept of the tether is really ingenius!! I love how despite the "failure" of the tether, they were able to gather enough useful information to consider it a success-and THAT, is how science works!!
Not a great film, but a great NASA film, especially for the youger audience with scien-tastic aspirations.
